I guess what I'm saying is that if he would be allowed to talk to Calgary before the trade and agree to sign a contract, I'd be okay with it, but I wouldn't want to be stuck with giving up stuff for someone who might just walk away for nothing. Or has this loophole been closed in the new CBA and I'm worrying about nothing?

How about Greg Nemisz (& say conditional 2014 4th) for Anders Lee? Not sure what the Isles would need.
